Microsoft Releases SkyDrive for iPhone

It seems that Microsoft is trying hard lately to get their name out on Apple’s mobile OS. Just yesterday, the company released OneNote for iPad, and last week they released My Xbox Live and Halo Waypoint — a companion to the Xbox’s popular first person shooter.

Today, they have released SkyDrive for iPhone. If you don’t already know, SkyDrive is Microsoft’s cloud storage system that offers 25 GB of free online storage — far more than the average competitor, such as Dropbox, could. The system can be used for anything from documents, to photos to EXE files. Surprisingly, it works extremely well, but until today there was no mobile app to truly expand its variety of users. Dropbox had better watch out, though, because something that offers nearly thirteen times the amount of storage that Dropbox does is bound to conquer the competitor’s territory in a swift manner.

If you’re an avid user of Windows Live SkyDrive and also own an iPhone, then head over here to download the app that will unify things a bit. In addition to today’s iPhone release, Microsoft has brought SkyDrive to Windows Phone. Check it out in the Marketplace.
